WOW … It’s hard to believe we’ve been living in Medellin Colombia for a month now. It seems like we just got here. 30 days ago, my family of 5 arrived in Medellin, Colombia on an airplane shortly after midnight. It was dark and raining and we didn’t know what to expect upon arriving.
Taxi drivers rushed us to get our luggage and it was all happening so fast. We didn’t understand what they were saying and the reality of it all hit us pretty quick … We are in a foreign country and we don’t know what the heck is going on. All I could think of was all of the negative stories I heard about kidnappings, drugs, ransoms and other craziness.
Because we had too many bags, we had to get into two separate taxis. My wife took two of the girls, and I had the youngest one … I honestly didn’t know what to think after we got into separate taxis. I immediately started praying and pleaded with God to get us all to the hotel safely and together. A part of me was frightened and hoped these taxi guys weren’t going to kidnap and ransom us off for money..
My driver was smiling and talking and smiling and talking the entire time in Spanish. All I could say the entire time was ‘Si’ (which means yes). He picked up the phone a few times and all I heard was ‘Americana’ and a big old smile on his face. So I just kept on praying and thanking God in advance for a safe delivery to the Holiday Inn Express.
That was 30-days ago … And our life in Medellin Colombia turned out to be shockingly UNBELIEVABLE.
